Popped in late Saturday, 9.45pm. We were not expecting to get food as it was late, but the staff were very helpful and said it would be no trouble. We ate in the bottom bar, which is very nice, with a large painting of the outside of the pub down one side of the bar, the food came out promptly,... More

We had tickets booked for Giffords Circus and so spent a lovely couple of days at The Fox Inn. Rooms are cosy and very well appointed. Staff are, without exception, friendly, helpful and hard working. Food was above average for pub fare, was freshly cooked and homemade. Breakfast was generous and had a wide ranging offer. We were nervous about... More

Busiest evening of the year so far. We had a new chef on the day, there was an administrative error on the food so one curry was not served but did come later. WE DID NOT CHARGE THESE PEOPLE FOR OUR ERROR (the dispute over the cold curry) and as for the Belly Pork being raw - this is physically... More

lovely location but the food was very dissapointing, poor quality and small portions and very expensive as was the drink, a pint of guinness over £4.50!!! I will not be returning, there are many other much nicer and better value pubs in the area

LordyTwizzle, Owner at The Fox Inn, responded to this review

Four reviews by this reviewer- nothing above average. The facts are wrong - Guinness is not over £4.50. Portions are not small at all and all products are tested and sourced, meals are home made. I hope this person finds a nicer pub and someone who appreciates his values. Why does the word of one carry so much power over... More

We visited the Fox for a lunch, as my wife is disabled we had phoned earlier to ascertain if it could accommodate disabled people, the person who answered the phone was extremely helpful. On arrival we decided to sit outside by the river, it was pointed out that there were two steps in the corridor so it would be better... More

Stayed overnight in one of the riverside mews rooms. Rather disappointing. Bed was poor quality, open coil mattress (you get better at a Premier Inn) room was adequate but rather dusty in places. Overpriced in my view. We arrived mid afternoon having read on website that food was served all day Fridays but were told that they were having problems... More

First thing that impressed me was the setting, next was the fact that when I went to check in at the bar, the guy behind the bar was busy serving a customer and had another waiting, but he took time to acknowledge me and said he would be with me shortly. He checked me in then showed me to my... More

This hotel had all the ingredient of an English country pub, the one that’s printed on Grandma’s biscuit tins. My view from the garden was of old stone walls covered with climbing Ivy and tall rambling English roses. The flagstone paving lead onto lush green lawn sprinkled with daisies and an “Aunt Sally” game invited people to play. In the... More
